"And then we lament about the loss of culture in our society. There is an increasing hypocracy about the way we handle things, isn't it Sir?"

Yes. Totally agree with you. Here we are, talking about implicitly subsidizing folks who CHOOSE to make
their living in the fine arts. And there we have folks who dont have any option but to live a live of drudgery,
working hand-to-mouth each day, barely able to make two ends meet. There we have kids begging for alms on the
corners of major roadways in various metros, of people so malnourished that it gives a new definition to the word
"stick". There we also have children born into so much poverty that the life they CHHOSE to live is
one given to them without any options, a life on the footpath and without any real education.

And yes, we want to sustain a culture that is riddled with hyprocrisy- one where we
have politicians palming off thousands of crores each year, big industrial groups paying off each and
every legislator in the country in order to get favorable treatment on their pet projects. And of course,
again politicians, who else, who have hood-winked entire states and regions into generations of under-development and
backwardness, of policies which have failed other countries in not so-recent times. A culture where a
bright IIT graduate who CHOOSES to make a life serving ordinary folks in his town gets murdered because
the local goons do not care for his ethics and interference. A culture where we can leave an accident victim
dying on the streets because we are in a hurry to get back home and switch on the entertainment.

And what to say of a culture where Bhagat Singh's sister dies on a Rs. 2000 per month
pension from the government in a Trans-Yamuna town. That's less than $50 a month. And what more, a culture where
the heroes of Kargill have been long forgotten, along with the latest sgmp show, while many in their families live destitute lives,
the wives never ever again finding the arms of their loved one, the children too small to ever know their father.
Do you know what that is like? So many tears and agonies expended for the winners and losers and the talent of
"reality shows", and none for the real heroes whose families get a measly few lakhs in compensation?

Culture. A culture of hyprocrisy indeed. While people are burning and toiling away in the heat
outside, we want to have cultured Neros fiddling away on their instruments in air-conditioned rooms.

It's great to have "culture", but before we start subsidizing our finer sensibilities,
let's address the social ills and problems in society. First build a culture of decency and caring.
To set any other priority is a shame on our real heritage.

Friends, sorry i see it so differently... Maaf karna
